This question came from one of my work colleagues who has the most sensitive eyes known to man! Everything and anything can cause irritation to her eyes. My eyes go through periods of being über sensitive too. I’m a contact lens wearer and most times I’ve also got full eye make up with lashes too, so when it comes to finding an eye make up remover that removes gunk at the end of the day, but also doesn’t leave my eyes red shot, I’ve tried my fair share of removers.
My absolute favourite and the one I always recommend for sensitive eyes is AHAVA Time to Clear Eye Make Up Remover, which also removes waterproof mascara.
It’s an oil and water emulsion which contains a blend of Dead Sea minerals with soothing aloe vera, Calendula and cucumber extracts. These take the zing away when removing eye make up! Even though it contains oil, I find that it doesn’t leaves a residue and you can easily move on to the rest of your routine with your eyes open(yes open!!) and not feeling sticky. I’ve used removers in that past that say they are for sensitive eyes that leave me squinting and virtually flailing around and destroying the bathroom when looking to pick up my next product!
Its everything that precious eyes need:
- Allergy tested
- tested by opticians
- safe for contact lens wearers
- SLS/SLES free
- fragrance free
- paraben free
An all round good egg!
After writing this post, I looked online to see if I can put links up for where you can purchase in the UK. Alas, it seems that you can’t buy it in the UK just yet. But I’ve been in contact with AHAVA and they say they’ve just received the product here in the UK and it will be on their website in the next few days.
